Apocalypse now, or at least in a little while

Thoughts from 2013 on Harold Covington's post-American apocalyptic novels.

Why is it, I wonder, that Nazis are still front and center as the most widespread icons of absolute evil, while the seven plus decades of worldwide Marxist horrors --Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro, the Gulag, etc.-- have gone right down the memory hole, as if they had never happened?

I think I know the answer.


An insightful friend said it was the uniforms. Very impressive. Makes Nazis look formidable. Soviet style, by contrast, was frumpy.
